Last Monday the research and print-outs finally led to action and we took to the trail to explore Battle Creek Falls in Pleasant Grove. The packs were overkill for our mile stroll, but we're in training for a Timp climb this summer and had to try out the new pack Ben got for his birthday!
Ben takes the road less traveled. Why walk on a path when there's a perfectly good dry stream bed 15 feet below the trail?
Ben continues to take the road less traveled - this time the stream has water
Once more, road-less-traveled Ben (are you detecting a theme?) takes an alternate path
Woo hoo! We made it to the falls! A perfect (and cool) picnic spot
And back down again. Sam found a stump and decided it was a Kiddie Kandids-like scene and insisted on a portrait. Good call, Sam, this is a great shot. Maybe Mommy should Photoshop the dirt streaks off of Sasha before we print the 8x10's though.
